  Mon. 3/5/12 3:04pm Van in DC:

Woo! Woo! Hi Scott!
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:04pm pierre:

All Bonjours to the great Hoof&Mouth synphonia leader : the great Scott !
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:04pm Looms:

Happy Marathon hangover, Scott! Nice work yesterday.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:04pm Danne D:

Great job on the 'thon Scott, as always. Thanks for all you do. And with that, I'm kicking back.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:05pm Your Beard:

Cut off! Abandoned!
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:08pm listener james from westwood:

congrats, scott, and wfmu, for the mighty mass of marathon moolah!
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:08pm BSI:

Starship Commander Woo Woo is now the greatest name of anything forever. I have spoken.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:09pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Another Stache-man! Welcome to the nabe.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:10pm listener james from westwood:

on the off chance the gap might be narrowed further, i posted the corporate matching pledge list to my twitter feed. http://www.wfmu.org/marathon/matching.shtml
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:10pm Caryn:

Hello all! In a tired post-marathon haze over here, but listening in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/5/12 3:12pm Scott:

morning all! mega-marathon lovebuzz happening over here
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:12pm Gord:

The gap continues to narrow — less than $2K to the $1.2M
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:13pm Carmichael:

Happy that FMU got the $$ it needed, upset that the single greatest band name EVER has been taken.

What're ya gonna do??
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:14pm Cheri Pi:

I have never been so excited about the end of a marathon, I kept my laptop on all night so I could check the final pledge amount in my dreams!!!
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:15pm BSI:

I will be aggressively re-naming my dog STARSHIP COMMANDER WOO WOO immediately upon arriving home this evening. It will all end in tears, I suspect.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:15pm Danne D:

@James that's an inspired thing. Be a total trip if matching $ from Monsanto but FMU over the top.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:16pm emmagineering:

so happy that it looks like 'fmu is gonna make the goal!
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:16pm pgw in mntclr:

the progress of that last 1% is straight-up asymptotic.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:17pm Chico:

Killed It Last nighty Scott! Amongst Many other DJs that also in fact killed it!!! Great Marathon Finale!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 3/5/12 3:17pm jtm:

The band sounded tight last night, Kudos to you Mister Williams.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 3/5/12 3:18pm jtm:

There really are some amazing musicians in that band. Y'all are far too modest.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:18pm Carmichael:

and boy oh boy, that X-Ray Burns is a *presence*. Subtlety is not his strong suit, eh?
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:20pm Danne D:

X.Ray is an FMU classic :)
Anyway, really now kicking back, enjoy the show.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:20pm Cheri Pi:

BSI-since you're naming the dog-I'll call the cat Starship Commander woowoo. And he'd better act the name.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:22pm listener james from westwood:

i want to see one of our people who is laboring behind the lines, in the grim depths of halliburton, channel a mouse's worth of their evil money to a better cause.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:23pm Mike East:

Yes - last night's performances were not to be missed. Ken dressed as Cher is burned in by brain. The sailor caps for the audience were an awesome addition, too. Great job, Scott and everyone who made it happen!
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:26pm Dervish:

Is this Jones & X-Ray from yesterday?!?
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:30pm Van in DC:

Missed the finale last night. Hope pictures will be posted somewhere someday.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:31pm Doug S.:

Van, the ON AIR light just arrived... FROM NEW ZEALAND!!!! You didn't just adopt the studio fixture, you bought it. Bless you Brother Van!
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:31pm Aimless:

This is awful
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:33pm Van in DC:

Awesome, Doug!
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:34pm listener james from westwood:

Van, check Flickr; there's an FMU photo pool there IIRC.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:35pm Skirkie:

I think there's still videos on ustream too.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:36pm Van in DC:

Anything for WFMU GTDS Studio P :)
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:36pm listener james from westwood:

Ah: http://www.flickr.com/groups/wfmuish/.
Some might eventually show up here too: http://www.flickr.com/photos/wfmu/
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:37pm Van in DC:

Thanks! Maybe the front page will have linkies to them. Actually I didn't even check for that...
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:39pm dc pat:

congrats Scott. Great Marathon.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:40pm KP:

Van! You missed Julie? She stole the show, no kidding. I just happened to think of it being on video. She really belted out her Adam
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:40pm kat330:

@Skirkie: Do you have a link to the big bash videos? We turned off at the halfway point approx. (got to see Irwin, heh!), and I listened to audio only for the remainder, but I'd love to see Ken as Cher. :)
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:40pm kat330:

And yes, Scott and all, you did such a fine job!
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:43pm Van in DC:

@KP - yep, I missed the entire thing. Glad to hear it all went fantastically well though!
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:44pm Caryn:

  Mon. 3/5/12 3:44pm Jeff:

Note that if you're paging through that WFMUish pool on Flickr, they'll generally look better in Flickr's "light box" view (largeish, on a black background). Just click on the little magnifying glass icon when you're viewing the first photo, then page through them from there.

F'rinstance, you can start with what looks like the most recent photo, from John D.


and then delve back in time from there.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:44pm Minnesota Jeff:

Scott: You could teach a Master Class on Hoof N Mouth Sinfonia band leading. Excellent job.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:45pm noeems:

Hi there everyone! I've been stuck on the Eurostar near 4 hours and scott's show helps me pass the time! Thank goodness for fmu.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:45pm joe:

WOOOO! Hall and Oates :). Great job Scott.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:46pm Jeff:

Yeah, the band blew the roof off the joint! I just don't understand how anyone on staff is back at work already - you all need some quiet time at the calmness farm.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:46pm Skirkie:

I was trying to get a link but my work computer is taking it's 3:30 nap. Caryn's got it up there.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:46pm kat330:

Thanks, Caryn! This morning I tried the recently added link on the front page, and it just kept "transferring data" forever. So I just listened to the audio remainder.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:47pm pierre:

yesterday when X-Ray Burns asked why the "Hoof&Mouth", i didn't understood because i was half asleep (around 03.30am here) so was there an answer to that question ?

@noeems : courage !
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:47pm dc pat:

jeeze this Pop. 1280 tune is nuts.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:47pm joe:

The fact that Liz was on this morning blows my mind. That's a champ right there.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:48pm joe:

@dc pat with you 100% on pop 1280
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:48pm KP:

Like $1200 away now, I think. Hard to juggle the sceens on iPhone. Might try to be one! I'll buy mysellf an espresso

  Mon. 3/5/12 3:48pm kat330:

We've endured a local weather-coaster: 70+-degrees last Thursday; deadly, violent tornadoes just up the road on Friday; then our first winter ice-snow of any accumulation this morning, Monday. I'd say March arrived less like a lion and more like Cthulhu. Oh, and it's back to the 70s on this Wednesday.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:48pm pierre:

Irwiiiiiiiiin covering Amanda THAT I SAW !
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:49pm Skirkie:

Irwin got some great sound out of that frying pan.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:49pm Minnesota Jeff:

joe: She's glue, but you know, not the kind you'd find in asbury park - X.Ray Burns
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:49pm berry:

omg YES!! i love this
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:49pm dc pat:

With all the dough Liz makes at FMU, she better show up...
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:49pm Cheri Pi:

This is Brilliant.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/5/12 3:49pm Scott:

Hoof & Mouth was the hot disease of early 2001, when the band formed
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:49pm BSI:

holy crap. This must appear on youtube immediately. Or I will have a crisis.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:49pm joe:

  Mon. 3/5/12 3:49pm kat330:

@MN Jeff: Can you explain what that means, BTW?
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:50pm KP:

Pierre, im sure Scott has video of Julie, he's just jealous.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:50pm Jeff:

Yeah, Irwin totally mined the Amanda catalog - with very special squonk from the band. Transcendent.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:50pm Chris from DC:

Oh, man, this made my afternoon.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:50pm barry:

Man, this was the highlight of HnM.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:50pm KP:

Irwin was awesome.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:52pm pgw in mntclr:

my 2 cents: the dual guitar work on "death valley '69" was absolutely fantastic
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:52pm Jace:

I'm sitting in EWR waiting to go home so I put FMU on the phone and BAM! I'm flashing back to last night and ducking Irwin/Amanda cookies.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:52pm KP:

$1001.32 to go.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:52pm Caryn:

This was great, but Keili doing the Kate Bush dance was my highlight. Of course, then someone posted the link to Noel Fielding doing the Kate Bush dance in drag and with backing dancers to mimic the video effect, and that became the highlight of the morning.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:52pm pierre:

i also enjoyed Wuthering Heights for some reasons.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:53pm Minnesota Jeff:

@kat330: I am assuming it either referred to Glue that you would huff, or a slang term for male ejaculate. X.Ray Burns tends to go blue with his material.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:53pm pierre:

(boom @Caryn — same time thoughts)
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:53pm kat330:

Wuthering Heights was a highlight for us as well.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:54pm dc pat:

yeah Death Valley 69 was kicking. very cool
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:54pm kat330:

@MNJ: Ah, okay. It sailed over us last night.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:55pm dc pat:

ok, am I stupid or something? How'd I not realize Irwin was covering Amanda?? That's the way my brain works sometimes--total disconnect.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:55pm KP:

Less than 1G.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:55pm Skirkie:

  Mon. 3/5/12 3:55pm Caryn:

Joe doing "Black Dog" was fantastic too, as was Scharpling's duo of songs.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:56pm Doug S.:

We are within one tenth of one percent from surpassing the goal. Or, as Andrés Cantor would say: http://bit.ly/xeAnM9
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:56pm kat330:

From what I saw of you on the playlists yesterday, DC Pat, you were feeling no pain! :)
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:56pm Skirkie:

You can even get that kind of rent around here.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:57pm dc pat:

yeah, but even still, I should have caught that one...hey wait a minute, what'd I say??
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:57pm Parq:

For the record, the consensus of the phone room was that Amanda's Televison take was the finest musical moment, that Keili was the MVP, and that Irwin gets a special award for out of control awesomeness.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:57pm pgw in mntclr:

if you let me sleep in the studio for a month, i can put you guys over the top
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:57pm Skirkie:

$626.29 holy shit, it's happening.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:57pm Minnesota Jeff:

Clay Pigeon doing "Freedom" was fantastic. Great thing about Clay is that there was no irony. Plus he playd his own guitar.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:58pm kat330:

Well, i realize no one around has anything left to pass around, but folks who can should consider donating to the Red Cross for the tornado victims around here. They were truly devastating, and we were lucky to be narrowly missed.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:58pm robyn:

i now need wfmu less for the radio, and more for the compulsive meter clicking experience.
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:58pm joe:

The Clay song was great
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:59pm kat330:

@Parq: YES, the Amanda "Venus de Milo" WAS the best! Forgot to mention I woke up this morning with that as an earworm. :)
  Mon. 3/5/12 3:59pm pgw in mntclr:

yeah, Amanda really owned the room during her song
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:00pm Cecile:

I listened to most of it.
Where can I find visuals?
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:00pm Caryn:

How could I forget Clay? That was awesome! The minute he began playing it, I was "OMG, someone is doing Freedom!" Then, when I noticed it was CLAY doing Freedom, I could've died from the perfection of the moment.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:00pm Parq:

Oh, and we all thought that X-Ray was -- well -- he was -- uh --you know, he -- well, we really don't know what he was, but damn, wasn't he just?
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:01pm Cecile:

I liked it all, but Clay really blew me away with his song. He's a good guitar player!

@DC Pat: Heh, it was mostly the all caps and punctuation.
J.T. and I so enjoyed the chance to see all the DJs (well, many, and we'll catch the rest of the video later), especially at play playing music. A thought for future newbies to the marathon: If you had some such event PRIOR to the beginning of fundraising, might you charm more money from folks?

  Mon. 3/5/12 4:15pm Robert:

So it was silent pledging, until Scott opened his mouth, that put it over the top? Aw, why couldn't it've happened on Jim Price's watch?
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:15pm hazel s:

congrats!!!!!! woohoooo
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:15pm glenn:

why isn't the mu cow standing on it's hind legs and bellowing?
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:16pm Karen in Sleepy Hollow:

Hooray! You guys deserve this big win! All that hard work pays off.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:17pm kiemzi:

victory! wfmu reigns supreme!!
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:17pm kata:

yeah! so happy.. [wagging cow and dog tails]
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:17pm MD:

  Mon. 3/5/12 4:17pm robyn:

what is this dog wagging business? i can't see anything in chrome.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:17pm glenn:

i suppose it's fitting that the stream pooches just as scott announces that the goal is met.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:18pm Marmalade Kitty:

Great show lastnight Scott!!! Well done everybody!!!!
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:18pm Carmichael:

Scott, you should play Monty Python's "The Money Song" as a celebration!
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:18pm Robert:

Sort of anticlimactic, isn't it? Like the car got pushed over the finish line after everyone left the racetrack.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:19pm Cecile:

ha, Duane and his glass of Hennessey.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:20pm Cecile:

Seriously, you have to have the cow give birth to a giraffe when Bryce makes his goal next year.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:20pm KP:

Robert: No.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:20pm Carmichael:

Or was it Courvousier? He was acting like the Lady's man ....
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:21pm Robert:

Or like shooting the winning free throw or penalty kick after time has expired.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:21pm jack m.:

  Mon. 3/5/12 4:21pm Cecile:

He said Hennesey.

He was, lol! Workin' the crowd.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:21pm Danne D:

yay :)
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:21pm Doug S.:

Nice multibestial image, Cecile.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:21pm kat330:

Hello to Jason Isaacs!
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:22pm Cecile:

And I think Irwin might have made Amanda listenable.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:22pm Caryn:

@Carmichael: he said it was Hennessey, but some people on the comments board were convinced it was Courvoisier.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:22pm KP:

I arranged with my brother the lawyer that my pledges will still get paid if my wife kills me.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:22pm Cecile:

Doug S., someone suggested it Friday and we were all gutted when it didn't happen
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:23pm Robert:

I think the best suggestion, and easiest to animate, for what the cow should do is tip over -- preferably on its back rather than its side. Really wasted cow.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:23pm Bas, NL:

Anyone told SM Ken about hitting the goal? Or is he still out cold?
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:24pm Cecile:

Scott, can you explain your outfit for you song? I have my theories, but I figured you should say your piece first.

  Mon. 3/5/12 4:24pm Doug S.:

He's already Tweeted it, Bas. Hey, congrats to you!
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:24pm kat330:

Bas, you be the boss of swagland!
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:24pm Danne D:

Btw, congrats on Barcelona, Bas :)
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:24pm Caryn:

Ken spent the night partying with sailors (I assume), so for all we know, he's just now waking up on a destroyer somewhere.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:25pm Cheri Pi:

YES WE DID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Scott-your dog isn't wagging its tail because you sir, are still behind. Ken is threatening an ass whooping from what I understand.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:25pm Minnesota Jeff:

Scott: What prompted the mid Sinfonia shave?
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:26pm Robert:

It could've been even more anticlimactic...like a month later someone realizes there'd been a miscalculation and they were 5% over goal. It could happen...like when the station thermometer read 82% and then was adjusted backward to 80% because of a correction.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:26pm kat330:

@Cheri Pi: But the front page didn't wag either, at least not when I looked.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:26pm Bas, NL:

@Danne D: Say WHAT!?
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:27pm Danne D:

Didn't they say that last night or did I imagine that?
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:28pm Danne D:

(it's possible since I totally didn't realize Scott shaved his beard last night either)
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:28pm kat330:

It was on the audio this morning, so you didn't dream it.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:28pm Bryan:

Congrats on the goal! Well done, all.

And Scott, you have heard this sometime in the last few days, haven't you?

  Mon. 3/5/12 4:28pm Looms:

@Bas: have you put a request for a few days off so you can go to Barcelona yet?
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:28pm Cecile:

You know, one year my husband's check was screwed up for the final four months of that year., and they didn't catch the underpayment until after Christmas - when we could have used it. But that was by no means anticlimactic.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:28pm Carmichael:

Yeah, I'm not getting any wagging, either. And I'ver NEVER been able to see the dots on the marathon map. IE 7.0. No big deal, despite what Wet Blanket Robert says.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:28pm Bas, NL:

Oww man... i passed out behind my laptop at about 4am...
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:29pm other david:

I believe they did say that! Congrats Bas! What a way to find out :)
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:29pm Danne D:

Um, Bas you won the Barcelona drawing :)
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:29pm Looms:

Hey! You didn't know?!
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:29pm Cecile:

which is what time, bas? August 2013 here?
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:30pm Danne D:

LOL - glad I got out of my self-imposed comment slow-down to tell you Bas :)
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:30pm Skirkie:

Ha ha you didn't hear that?
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:30pm Cecile:

what a nice thing to find out!
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:31pm kat330:

If you've never been to Barthelona, Bas, you'll love it! Gaudi, not gawdy.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:31pm Stanley:

Congrats Bas, it couldn't have gone to a better fella
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:31pm Bas, NL:

WOW!!!!! Oh, that's so great guys!!! I had not heard before!! Fantastic!! And for sure i'm going!!!
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:32pm Cheri Pi:

We need IT stat on the dog's lack of tail wag up in here
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:33pm kat330:

Perhaps Kenzo is taking a WELL-deserved break on the tech biz?
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:34pm Cecile:

bas, email station Manager Ken, I'm sure he has deets. Or Joe McGasko.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:34pm pierre:

@Bas : you're learning it here? On Scott's show ?
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:35pm Bas, NL:

I've been to Barcelona once.. i LOVE the city, and now with Primavera.. awesome!
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:35pm robyn:

If I don't get the tail-wagging customer service I require, I will demand, DEMAND my money back!
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:36pm kat330:

Awww, that's truly perfect, Bas!
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:36pm Bas, NL:

@Cecile: Will do! Thanks Cecile!
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:37pm Bas, NL:

@pierre: Yes!! Big surprise!
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:37pm Fiveash:

$1.2 Mil! Thanks/congratulations everybody. Thanks especially to Scott for once again wrangling the motley collection of weirdos known as the Hoof & Mouth into doing mostly passable renditions of such a vast array of tunage.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:38pm pierre:

Whao do you hear that Scott, tonight your show is GOOD NEWS !
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:38pm Caryn:

Oh, Bas, I thought you knew. But since you fell asleep 2 hours before they announced it... Anyway, congrats! Ken was saying that it was going to save WFMU money, because the plane ticket would be cheaper from the Netherlands to Spain than from the US to Spain :)
So you're a worthy winner, and you're helping keep WFMU on budget! Nice!
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:39pm Parq:

Bas, it's true. Even the guys in the phone room were happy for you. And think how much money FMU will save on airfare; hell, they could send you by train for all I know.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:40pm Parq:

Fiveash, everybody in the phone room was taken with 'Manda's Televsion take, but I want you to know we really dug your number, too.

great stuff last night scott!

This was a Sonic Youth bit, was it? Sounds more like X than the X number did.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:43pm Dave B:

Was fun witnessing the insanity last night.

Scott and Faye totally looked like they were ready to go on tour with that performance :)
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:43pm moose:

hey look it was reached!
hooray for dj faye!
and her super marathon artwork too
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:44pm ADL:

As I understand it, everything about the $1.2 mil goes right up Ken's nose, so I imagine he won't be making any appearances for a good long while.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:44pm bon voyage:

  Mon. 3/5/12 4:46pm Skirkie:

It does NOT go up Ken's nose!

Ken's a pill man.

Who'll be the WFMU DJ to play "Looks Like We Made It" from Barry Manilow?
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:46pm Steve L:

Alice Coltrane! I just told a friend last week that this is what I want played at my funeral. I didn't think it was on DVD.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:47pm Parq:

KfHP, that would be Clay, I dare say.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:47pm ADL:

@Skirkie: Yeah, but he's also adventurous and willing to try new things. Plus you can grind up pills, no prob.

GOOOAAAAAAALLLL! Congratulations, everyone!
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:49pm Fiveash:

Tanqs Parq! Agreed that Amanda kicked ass on that Television song. Wondering if we can use whatever is raised beyond the goal to pay off the Jersey City cops to make themselves scarce so we can kill Snooki?
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:50pm Doug S.:

Extra num-nums for Kenzo!
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:50pm David Naughton:

F Manilow! Gimme some free-form love and play "Makin' It!"

How good is Kenzo? Seriously. Hooray for tail wagging!
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:51pm kiemzi:

yay! $1.2 mil and a waggy puppy! thanks kenzo!
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:51pm Stanley:

The dog's doing it. Yeah!!!
Avatar Mon. 3/5/12 4:51pm Kenzo:

Thanks to Tim for drawing the wags!
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:52pm Danne D:

@Fiveash alas it's like the medusa, you cut off the snooki and two more will grow in its place! The media is mostly in the business of creating more snookis.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:52pm other david:

I think the extra cash should be put to a worthy cause, such as spreading it on the SUW bed and having Ken roll around on it, while wearing his vinyl centurion outfit - and then having the image immortalised in .gif form
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:53pm Cheri Pi:

It Waggeth! It Waggeth!
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:54pm still b/p:

Wags is visual swag.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:54pm kat330:

I thought the X-Ray NJ girls "glue" reference had something to do with Jersey Shore -- press on nails, glued on false eyelashes and the like.
  Mon. 3/5/12 4:54pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Put some cash aside (now!) for a better Cher costume for Ken for next year.

@Danne D - sorry I have to nerd out - you are thinking of the Hydra - not medusa. :)

Radio Es Amor!
  Mon. 3/5/12 5:04pm Danne D:

@Mike East - both would probably be apt
  Mon. 3/5/12 5:05pm Mike East:

True enough. I've never seen this Snooki character, but I suspect if I did, I wish to be turned to stone
  Mon. 3/5/12 5:06pm Carmichael:

Ken will just spend the extra money on outfits. He is the Doc Severinson of freeform radio, after all.
  Mon. 3/5/12 5:07pm robyn:

it wags! woohoo!
  Mon. 3/5/12 5:09pm mu:

i'm unmoved

1.2million.. one or two weeks wages of a top premiership football player.. perspective- WFMU keeping it real! power to the people!! :)
  Mon. 3/5/12 5:10pm #K:

thank you for the kind words scwilliams!! to me you are the superstar (also a song performed by sonic youth)
  Mon. 3/5/12 5:12pm moo:

hey dj faye when's your next show?
  Mon. 3/5/12 5:12pm Carmichael:

Seriously, when will Ken make a public statement to the potato-eating proletariat? He's pretty darn smug in his silence. Or he's at the record smelter creating a new outfit.
  Mon. 3/5/12 5:15pm Jeff:

100% http://bit.ly/zOB6m1
  Mon. 3/5/12 5:18pm Danne D:

@Marmalade Kitty - the "franchise tag" for a placekicker in American Football is $2.6m this year.
  Mon. 3/5/12 5:19pm Dave B:

@Jeff - that'd be me...
  Mon. 3/5/12 5:26pm Sam:

It would be cool if WFMU could make so much in pledges that they could start paying all their DJs 6-figure salaries.
  Mon. 3/5/12 5:27pm Sam:

Now that FMU made the goal they have no excuse to can Professor Dum Dum!
  Mon. 3/5/12 5:28pm ross:

congrats, keep on with the crazy...
  Mon. 3/5/12 5:36pm MD:

  Mon. 3/5/12 5:37pm Sam:

Yeah, they should call it Light FM! And all the dj's should talk in very soothing superficial voices.
  Mon. 3/5/12 5:41pm Jeff:

@Dave B: That's funny. Had to be somebody part of the near family, that car being parked outside the station and all...

I was planning to answer my own question with "hippie noise aficionados, that's who." but it seemed like gilding the lily.

I'm surprised the ESPN radio interference wasn't found during mike check time. Or did someone nearby turn on their radio after things were set up?
Avatar Mon. 3/5/12 5:50pm Kenzo:

Probably the rest of the year, you can hear WFMU on ESPN videos.
  Mon. 3/5/12 5:51pm Carmichael:

Hopefully, FMU bleeds through Pardon the Interruption.
  Mon. 3/5/12 5:52pm other david:

great set, scott
  Mon. 3/5/12 5:55pm Minnesota Jeff:

They solved the ESPN problem for a little bit, but it came back. It was only bleeding through on UStream video cast, which is odd.
  Mon. 3/5/12 5:55pm Stanley:

Great show Scott. Fantastic end to the marathon. Here's to the next twelve months. Goodbye and take care everyone
  Mon. 3/5/12 5:55pm PMD:

Very late to the party, but congrats to all!

Ken hasn't said anything because God has called him home. He was pretty serious about that $1.2 million by midnight.

  Mon. 3/5/12 5:57pm Mark T in VT:

On the train back to VT I could hear the show off and on but just till now the comments board is available. I thought Scott maybe left it off to take it easy today. But I did get to hear the good news from Scott while we had connection on the train!
  Mon. 3/5/12 5:58pm Looms:

Thx Scott
  Mon. 3/5/12 6:11pm Danne D:

LOL @Kenzo - there's a comment page with 1200+ comments and I think NONE of them are mine. That's a bit of an upset :)
  Mon. 3/5/12 10:29pm Ike:

Scott -- great show!

An Egyptian deity with anger-management issues was keeping me off the comments this afternoon, but at least I was able to listen real-time and hear the goal-busting moment.

BTW, just for the record, @Caryn@4:38 and @Parq@4:39, I *think* Primavera Fest pays for that.
